Supported Internships are a structured work based study programme for young people aged 16-24 with additional needs who want to get in to work. Being given the opportunity of an Internship can be a life changing for our interns. Many of the employers we work in partnership with have also reported that being involved in the programme has been great for their business and employees.
We are always looking for supportive local businesses to provide real job opportunities. This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved, for more information please see our dedicated Supported Internship programme or the course information page for Supported Internships.
For more information or to get involved Contact our Supported Internships Team and we can help you find a suitable Supported intern to help meet you business need.
Leeds City Law firm Ison Harrison, initially took on Supported Intern Jack, 20, for a supported internship placement. They were so pleased with his work and attitude, that they offered him permanent employment.
'Ison Harrison were delighted to be asked to take part in the scheme and started to consider suitable roles and tasks for a supported intern. The Supported Internship Programme at Shipley College matched us with a suitable candidate and after a successful interview, the placement was agreed. The support Shipley College provided to our intern, Jack, was quite intensive initially, but reduced as Jack’s skills, experience and confidence developed, with him working completely independently, within a relatively short space of time. We had seen the Supported Internship as a short-term placement only but now we employ Jack on a permanent contract. He does a great job and is employed on his own merit. We would not hesitate to recommend the programme to other employers.'Paul Allinson
